I have been using the Eneloops for about 5 years for various devices. They are a bit pricey, but I hate the idea of disposable batteries. It seems like such a waste when I could just buy a different brand that can recharge. These have been solid performers, but I have no way to quantify the charge life compared to others.

If that actually works it'll be huge. I'm surprised that the battery company didn't buy the tech/patent and bury it.

Cool, a tiny DC to DC converter. Nothing new here, except the form factor & the "Green" marketing wave of recent. Talk about ripe for mandate!

They seems to have stretched the truth on their estimates, but it still looks promising.
